Eggy Time is an enjoyable and motivational app that helps children aged 4 – 8 learn to tell time.
The app develops skills and concepts to assist with telling time using 5 highly interactive games that make learning to tell time fun. Children will enjoy setting the hands and numbers on a variety of clocks. They get to read and match times, including o’clock times, half hours and quarter hours, as well as exploring time estimation. They can also do some problem solving – working out the times of events in the future and the past.
Each activity has 3 levels to complete so children can see their improvement and make real progress in each skill.
There are plenty of rewards too, with 15 Mashies to unlock and collect for completing each activity.
Eggy Time is brought to you by the popular educational websites Reading Eggs and Mathseeds. Our team has more than 20 years’ experience in making high quality educational products. We believe learning should be fun, motivating and full of success.

Engaging time-teaching app
I think this is the best time-teaching app I have found yet- the activities are interactive, engaging and include a variety of clocks- for example, digital, and analog clocks, and even a “smartphone” clock that kids have to look at to find the correct answer. It is good to expose kids to what they will see in real-life- at home, at school, or in the community. The only improvement I would like to see is the times VOICED instead of just written, so that students who have not yet learned to read the numbers in word form, i.e. “five o’clock” versus “5 o’clock”, will be able to practice time-telling without also having to figure out what time-related word is being displayed. Perhaps if a student tapped the time-related word, it could say it- or there could be a button in settings for this option, so it could be turned on or off depending on the ability level. Would also like to see a parental gate to keep kids from accessing link to the other games in the App Store- although you could probably block the lower left hand corner of the screen with guided access for this without impeding the game play on the other screens, it would just be nice to have that sorted out already. The best activity in the app is the “time estimation” flying activity though. I have not seen this skill offered in other apps, and it is an important skill- a time in seconds will be displayed, for example “three seconds”, and then the child taps the character to make him begin flying, and then counts out to three on his own, and taps the character when reaching three seconds. If the child guessed the right amount of time that passed, the character will land safely, but if the child guessed fewer or more seconds had passed, the character will fall. Very cute, and unique. After doing an exercise, a “mashie”, a silly made up monster character, is earned, by tapping on an egg to hatch it. The kids love this part, and a voice over explains the whole process too.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
